19 Kids and Counting: Jill's Special Delivery is a two-hour special episode of the show that features the Duggar family. This special episode airs Tuesday night, May 5th, and will highlight Jill Duggar as she recently experienced both labor and birth.

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard welcomed their son, Israel David Dillard, into the world on April 6th, but not everything went as the young couple planned. This episode of 19 Kids and Counting will share with fans how some things that could go wrong during labor did exactly that for Jill and Derick.

People magazine reports that Jill Duggar--a student midwife in addition to a young wife and new mom--was on 'information overload' prior to having her baby.

"She's got information overload," Michelle Duggar says in a sneak peek at this special episode of 19 Kids and Counting. "Plus, there's the realization that she's fixing to go through [the delivery of her first child]. Put those together and you could call that stress!"

Jill Duggar Dillard wound up experiencing 70 hours of labor before giving birth to baby Israel via a C-section. That--as well as even more details--will play themselves out on this week's episode of 19 Kids and Counting.

Will you be tuning in to TLC tonight (Tuesday, May 5th) at 8:00 p.m. ET to see 19 Kids and Counting: Jill's Special Delivery?

Hopefully Jill Duggar's 70 hours of labor doesn't cause too much stress for sister Jessa Duggar. She and hubby Ben Seewald are the latest members of the 19 Kids and Counting family to announce that they're now expecting a baby, too.
